Routledge & Kegan Paul, London, (1975), first edition. 
210 pp, 8vo (8 11/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0710082339 B&w illustrations. "....a captivating collection of personal memories of childhood from over one hundred contributors - days spent in every part of Scotland, from the Shetlands to the Borders, from the Hebrides to Aberdeen. Their memories of the games they played, and the words they sang and said, provide a fascinating and unusual view of the child's world. Amy Stewart Fraser has arranged the collection into fourteen cat egories, including 'Singing Games', 'Ball Games', 'Bairns at Play', 'Country Ploys and Country Joys'. There is also an extensive glossary of words and terms. All of which contribute to Mrs. Fraser's desire to preserve the memories of a f o r g o t t e n w ay of life - when children enjoyed simple things with home-made toys and little pocket money, when they largely made their own entertainment, and the streets were safe for them to play in...."
